CLARKSVILLE (KFSM) — Voters in the Clarksville School District will decide in a special election whether to fund improvements to the schools’ athletic facilities and build new safe rooms.
The vote today will decide whether the millage rate for the district will increase to 44.3 mills, a 5-mill increase over the current tax rate. For those with property appraised at $100,000 and an assessed value of $20,000, the average increase would be about $10 a year.
The money would help fund an $11.7 million project that includes a new basketball arena, improvements to the football stadium and the construction of three safe rooms.
Only those living in the Clarksville School District can vote, but qualified voters can vote at any of the polling places.
